Your title made me cringe ( I remembered that horrible song....lady in red, blah blah, dancing with me...AAAAAGH!!!);)

Nice drawing tho!

It must have come from somewhere, don't you wonder about that?;)

Jolanta - She is beautiful ! :clap: and ought to be framed!!!

Doodling is wonderful - mainly because it is so relaxed, free and enjoyable without too much care or fear about the outcome- and then all of a sudden you are drawn in to it and it develops this wonderful life of its own. In fact - I think some of my best work has come from doodling - and I love this piece of yours!!

Fantastic !! :D

Cheers Dahzl :D

I wanted to thank so much all of you. Didn't expect such a big response. I almost messed this drawing up. My scanner is plying games with me. Refuses to size pics so I was cutting her smaller and smaller - wanted to show you. Now she doesn't have too much room to breathe but I still can frame her. I don't doodle as often as I should but when I do I am usually amazed with results.
Thanks, I appreciate your comments. Going back to fight with the scanner.

I am so pleased to get such a good response. I am always attracted to "sentimental" and "daydream" like expressions. When I look for some ideas and ref for people expressions in magazines and such I always see all people happy and smiling and I ask myself "what they are so happy about" this is not natural at all and actually boring. So when I doodle I usualy make people look just the opposite. At least they are closer to the reality. It is so much beauty in people around us. I am getting more and more sensitive to expressions and I can "read" people so well it is scary but helps my art. Just keep your eyes opened my friends and pay attention - that's all it takes. It doesn't really matter what kind of technique you use as long as you can communicate with others through art.

Thanks for your warm response. I am so glad we still have so many sensitive people around.
